Inaugurated in 1997, Singapore Chinese Orchestra (SCO) is Singapore's only professional national Chinese orchestra. With more than 80 musicians, SCO promotes Chinese traditions, curates contemporary commissioned musical pieces, as well as performs compositions that inscribed an uniquely Singaporean signature in its repertoires. Besides staging ticketed concerts in the concert hall, SCO also engages the public through concerts held in communities, hospitals, schools and more. SCO has made its presence internationally and performed in overseas concerts held in China, Europe, and Southeast Asia.
